Armed Turks Arrested

More than 50 youths carrying knives, baseball bats and petrol bombs were arrested when about 500 Turks protesting against the presence of Kurdish "freedom marchers" in Brussels clashed with police.


Sunday was the second successive night of trouble in the city's Turkish quarter. Eleven people were hurt on Saturday night, when police used a water cannon to break up fighting between Kurdish and Turkish immigrants.


The Turks had tried to prevent the 150-strong group of Kurds holding a meeting in a local hall.
